The EDU HUB is available at building.dupont.com/eduhub. Visitors will be able to browse new, informative and entertaining content such as, the premier podcast in the series, Residentially Speaking with host, Alan Hubbell.

Visitors to EDU HUB will also be able to register to participate in an upcoming webinar on May 13, Designing & Building Healthy Homes, with a focus on the building envelope and indoor air quality. This webinar features well-known industry expert speakers, Steve Easley and Susan Raterman, as they demonstrate why properly ventilated, well-insulated, tighter homes have better indoor air quality and are healthier to live in than traditionally insulated homes.
DuPont Performance Building Solutions provides the marketplace with a full suite of weatherization, thermal and air sealing solutions and services with the EDU HUB being the latest addition to a solution set aimed at both supplying and serving the needs of the residential building industry. DuPont knows staying abreast the latest information and topics in construction is important to builders because the homes they build today will need to stand the test of time — expanding, contracting, breathing and protecting — for generations to come. Build better. Build beyond. Build for sure.
